Be Counted as a Warrior


“There must be those among whom
we can sit down and weep
and still be counted as warriors”

-Adrienne Rich


After reading this quote I realized I’m blessed to have a community of
people with whom I can weep and still count. I made this meme for them.

Thoughts and Vibrations

Repetitive thoughts are mantras, 
chanted in our minds. 
Thoughts and words create vibrations, 
that generate physical reactions. 
Think and chant blissful, up-full and loving thoughts, so that what you create; serves you and those around you. 

When we curse others, even in our minds, we are casting spells that are bound to return 3 fold to you. 
Especially be careful of cursing those you love.

Peace, Blessings and Loving Thoughts-

A Strange Feeling

We all think like this; we think we are strange. When we are alone within our inner world, I truly believe that we all have this thought.  It is what drives people to conform to the group, society or whatever community it is we want to belong to.  
Most people will hide and suppress this feeling of strangeness and loneliness. It is so strong, the desire to be normal and accepted, that we ignore the absurdity of our being and join the crowd.  
Revealing to others that we have this feeling of wonder, and realization, of :”I am unique and different” is an act of courage, and sadly as we grow the feeling goes away. We forget it is a miracle  that we even exist at all. 
People who are strange and willing to admit it, turn the wheels of time. They are willing to risk ridicule is order to enhance and recreate into the material world; the odd qualities perceived within a remarkable existence.

Embrace your strangeness it is, paradoxically, what unifies us with the rest of the world. 

My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer…

“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,”
the boy told the alchemist one night
as they looked up at the moonless sky.”
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering
is worse than the suffering itself.
And that no heart has ever suffered
when it goes in search of its dreams.”

-Paulo Coelho in The Alchemist
